Do you have libfreetye, libxft and fontconfig installed? If so, does
/etc/fonts/fonts.conf point at the directories that have truetype fonts in
Try running fc-cache (this creates a font cache file in the directories (and
subdirectories) pointed to by fonts.conf - libqt uses this to look for fonts.
If libxft is not installed, I don't know how it works - but I guess its an
xserver configuration problem - look in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and see what it
says in the list of fontpaths. (This is probably the most likely explanation,
because I just noted that my config file got "updated" during the last update
and my fontpaths got reset - however in my case the fontconfig combination
made all this invalid).
